Detectives arrest 59-year-old man for indecent exposure after mom catches him masturbating while looking at her daughter at Canyon Country community pool. 

On Friday, June 14, 2019, a local mother and her 6-year-old daughter were at a community pool when she noticed an adult male who was possibly masturbating while looking at her daughter. On Tuesday, June 18, her worst fears were confirmed when she returned to the same community pool with her daughter and saw the same man there. This time, she witnessed the man looking at her daughter, masturbating, and exposing himself. 

A report was made with the sheriff’s station and on the next day, June 19, detectives had the suspect in custody. He was positively identified through a photographic lineup. 

The suspect, Clifford Bigler, 59, of Canyon Country was arrested on a felony charge of indecent exposure and an additional charge of annoying a child under 18. It was a felony charge because he had a prior conviction.

Detectives would like to reach out to the public to determine if there are any other victims of a similar crime. If you have any additional information, please contact the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Detective Bureau at 661- 255-1121 ext. 5146. Tips may also be submitted anonymously through www.LACrimestoppers.org.

Parents are reminded to always exercise vigilance in keeping a watchful eye on their children, as this one mother did. Incidents such as these unfortunately could occur in even the best of neighborhoods.

Another way to safeguard children is to stay informed of any registered sex offenders that may reside in your area. Information may be found at www.meganslaw.ca.gov.

Thank you Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station

That happened to me quite a few years ago. We were taking a painting class and a man was standing outside of the glass window facing us masturbating. I yelled really loud look ladies that's no big thing he got embarrassed and went away never saw him again so glad.

I just had the very same thing happen to me last Thursday. I was walking with my grandkids from the Senses in Newhall to the parking garage when an old guy did this to me. I was really grossed out then and even now when I think about it.

Thank you for getting this guy

We need to see his face and tattoos. Sad. Praying for him to find Jesus. 😪

Nice job mom.

Thank you for all you do! But I’m tired of the laws protecting the guilty by covering his face!!!

POS!!! So glad he’s off our streets for now... thank you Law Enforcement and the Citizen that was Pro-Active!!! Need to constantly be aware of our surroundings.. Mom’s & G-MOM’s stay VIGILANT!!!

Great job mom for being vigilant and well done arresting this man SCV LASD!

I have no understanding for this stupid act. I'm with you Brad, he would be fortunate he was alive; without testicles. Hey it could be worse although maybe it would give the rest of the world a sense of peace.

I was traumatized as a child, I never told. I’m so glad they got him 😡

There is an young adult that lives in the Soledad Gardens complex that has been caught doing the same thing more than once. The cops won't do anything about it as he is a mentally unstable. I guess they will just wait til he molest someone😡

Why block his ink and face? Hope when he is convinced you are able to publish his identity for others to be aware of when he is let out by Cali politics. Thank you Santa Clarita sheriffs for all that you do. I can not imagine having to do your jobs! Having to deal with trash that go after children like this.

Annoying a child is the best our lawmakers could name such a crime?

I wish they had showed his face so everyone knows who he is

He’s lucky I didn’t catch him doing that in front of my daughter.

I have no words for this sick individual. I am so glad it was caught before he put hands on a child if he already hasn’t. Way to mom for paying attention. 😡

He needs to be shown!!!

Why are his tattoos covered!?! Let’s see them! I want to be able to spot this waste of human skin next week when they release him without enough evidence to hold him! 😡

He's really sweating now that he's in a pair of our SCV souvenir metal bracelets.

I hope he makes some new friends in jail that can help him be rehabilitated. 😡🤬 hope he ends up in general population in prison and not protected with other child molesters.

“Parents are reminded to exercise vigilance” and yet when we do it’s #thinkbeforeyoushare contradictory much?

🤮

So he is probably already registered? has he done this before? So happy he is in jail. keep him there please! 🙏

Deputy busts drivers for alleged street racing. On Monday around 7:15 a.m., a deputy was in a parking lot off of Commuter Way, Saugus, when he observed a Chevy Camaro pass by on Soledad Canyon at a high rate of speed, 104 mph. Trailing not too far behind was a Scion XB, that appeared to be trying to keep up with the Camaro.

Traffic stops on both vehicles were conducted. Both male adult drivers, ages 20 and 31, were arrested for ‘engaging in a speed contest.’ The cars were towed and impounded for 30 days. After fines and impound fees, each driver is looking at a total cost of approximately $5,000. 

A car is a deadly weapon if used recklessly. If you choose to drive recklessly, you could be jailed, be fatally injured, or take someones life; perhaps, the life of someone you love, or your own.

Be responsible, drive safely!

I see this on our roads a lot and it ticks me off! That is a costly lesson for them. Great job, deputies!

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Foundation assists local law enforcement.

This volunteer organization was formed in 1984 by local citizens to assist local law enforcement in a tangible way, purchasing equipment and crime prevention materials, as well as raising funds to help the Civilian Volunteer, Law Enforcement Explorer, and Reserve Deputy Programs at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Our Sheriff’s Explorer Program has created a volunteer partnership between youths in our community and law enforcement. The explorers, between 15 and 21 years of age, receive extensive training in an academy setting.

They then participate in community affairs and non-hazardous law enforcement activities. The explorer program is great for those youth considering a future career in law enforcement or those who just want to get involved and help out.

If you are interested in working as a Sheriff’s Explorer, please fill out the Deputy Sheriff Explorer Interest Form, or at the bottom of this page or contact Deputy Fanny Lapkin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121 x5160. Those who are interested in the Sheriff’s Explorer program, but do not wish to apply for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, should print the Interest Form and apply to the LA County Sheriff’s station of their preference.

Mission Statement/About Us

In 2010 nationwide trends and local concerns prompted officials from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station in partner with the City of Santa Clarita and the County of Los Angeles to conduct a thorough assessment into the scope of the narcotic epidemic in the Santa Clarita Valley.
